MEVO (Mahwah Environmental Volunteers Organization) is an environmental not-for-profit organization based in Northern New Jersey. We are lead entirely by youth: high school, college, and graduate students as well as young spirited adults. We envision a sustainable world with enough resources for everyone, where people don’t live in toxic surroundings, and where everybody considers their impact on the Earth. We want to get people involved in taking action to solve our world's worst environmental problems so that we can pass on a better future for future generations. To accomplish this MEVO works throughout Northern, New Jersey on a variety of volunteer-led environmental sustainability projects ranging from trash clean-ups and building hiking trails to building organic farms and teaching people about local beekeeping. Since MEVO’s founding in June 2008 the organization has mobilized and engaged over 2,500 volunteers contributing over 23,000 hours of volunteer work to local communities. For all of our work MEVO was declared a 2014 New Jersey Hero and received the 2014 National Jefferson Award for Public Service.
